OST:

Been getting back into streaming my composing process and thought I'd share the track I'm currently working on.  Still pretty rough in stuff like transitions & writing and it's completely unmastered.

Also, if you want to see previous sessions or watch it being made live, you can tune in at https://www.twitch.tv/nutritiousmusic

Oh shiiiiii. this starts off super epic!

I like it, for a minute I didn't think I was going to be able to rock out. Great track.

Sounds promising, keep at it! Personally though, I am so so so tired of that "two step" drum'n bass beat.

Regardless of my tiredness level, it's funny how I always end up with that beat whenever I sit around jamming..

Some tweaks and first mastering pass complete.  Pretty much finished, though I need to re-render to fix the initial note cut-off and do some EQ tweaks.

EDIT: Now with remix title :P

Thanks for the comment.  Yeah, I know it's an oft-used pattern, but it's the core of the classic dnb rhythm, sans the 16th notes that lead into the second snare.  I do try and give enough fill variation to keep it interesting. :)

Ok, last post on this one.  Finished it out and also tried out the FL Visualizer plugin for the first time.  Thing is stupid fun to use and results came out pretty good!

Solid stuff! Regardless of the drum'n bass modern classic rythm ;) Love the variety, and the solo lead finishing off the whole thing was awesome. You have a new subscriber. Please check out my YT channel as well, and subscribe if you feel like it. I have a VGM remix album coming up. Mostly electronic cool stuff :D

Sounds pretty good! Nice and anthemic. I think one minor gripe I might have about it is that I can't distinguish the hi hats from the supersaw fuzz, and that, for me, reduces the perceived energy of the drums since I only perceive the kick and snare.

Fuuuuuuck those strings are nice in the intro.

Guitars are.... I mean, they're not going to fool anybody into thinking they're real, but they sound nice enough. They do their job.

Brass at 0:55 is a bit mechanical.

Once the beat comes in, again, you're not going to make anybody think the instruments are real, but they work well enough together, and the beat is compelling. Throughout this whole section, though, I keep waiting for a main melody come in, and the whole thing just feels like accompaniment. I feel like the stage is set, but nobody's on it... hopefully that makes sense? I mean, nothing here sounds like a lead, and I'm not sure what instrument is supposed to have my attention.

Lead synth is nice, but I feel like you took too long to build up to it. Ending is a bit lacking. Percussion is a bit repetitive.

Best way I can describe this is that it feels like a good backing track which is still waiting for a lead. Some cool stuff going on, but no central part to really hold my attention.
